FYI: Clark Gable didn't sit out the war narrating movies. After the death of his wife, actress Carole Lombard, in an air crash in 1943, he enlisted in the Army and flew several missions with the 8th Air Force as a tail gunner on B-17s.

Subject: Clark Gable stars in the spectacle of a lifetime!
In this highly romanticized flick about air bombers, air fighting footage is mixed in with obvious renactments (by the soldiers themselves!) of life at war. Narrated by Clark Gable, who narrated this film as his contribution to the war effort (lucky guy) the hour long film drags a lot, and that's a shame, as it's really cool to look at WWII in color. The whole thing doesnt REALLY get going until the third part, and it's doubtful people would want to stick it out to get to that point.
